Walk Run For Kids - Fundraising for pediatric patients & families
PROCEEDS & DONATIONS: WALK RUN FOR KIDS proceeds will be used to provide support for unmet needs of pediatric patients and their families at the Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital.
FUNDRAISING is optional, but every dollar raised helps sick and injured children in our pediatric patients and their families. Your help is appreciated!
AWARDS will be given to top fundraising teams and individuals and runners in age categories; children participating in the Fun Run for Kids will receive medals. Runner times will be posted on this site.
AT THE UPSTATE FOUNDATION & UPSTATE GOLISANO CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL, we serve children and families in 22 counties within the Central New York region from Canada to Pennsylvania, including the Southern Tier. More than 12,000 visits to Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital are made annually by Southern Tier families. This is why your support of the Walk Run for Kids is vital – it helps so many of the most vulnerable in our own community.
